‘@Dame_Lillard looks like he’s just toying with Dallas defenders right now. I wonder if Rick Carlisle will ever go to the double-team. He’s done it a little but not nearly enough. Lillard has 39 points on 13-21 shooting, and 8-12 on 3’s. Dallas leads 112-101 with 7:38 left.
They don’t give up at the offensive end.
The two All-Stars — and yes, @Dame_Lillard will be an All-Star — are off to great starts. Luka Doncic has 14 points on 6-9 shooting. Lillard has 14 points on 5-7 shooting, 3-4 from 3-point range. And we’re not yet at the end of the 1Q
Terry Stotts on Mavs’ All-Star Luka Doncic: "He’s in the MVP discussion. What he’s doing is remarkable for a 20-year-old 2nd-year player. He does everything for them. They have the No. 1 offense in the league & that’s mainly because of what he does. He makes his teammates better"
Sure, I’ll take that bet
Only 6 players have scored 60 points in a game twice or more in their career: Wilt Chamberlain, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Elgin Baylor, James Harden & @Dame_Lillard. Players such as LeBron, West, Bird, Malone & Shaq hit 60 once. Lillard has done it twice in a span of 10 weeks.
